2 Kings 13:1-14:22; Jeremiah 49:1-39; Hebrews 13:7-25

The Lord hath appeared…saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an
everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn
thee. Jeremiah 31:3

How thrilling to think of God loving us for eternity. Our finite
minds comprehend now and an eternity to come. But God tells us
of eternity past and the fact that His love for us existed in that eternity
also—I have loved thee with an everlasting love. He further
tells us that His eternal love is characterized by “lovingkindness”.
Our minds cannot understand it now, but we’ll have eternity to
learn and comprehend it all. —Ken Gross

Oh, love of God, how rich and pure! How measure-less and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—the saints’ and angels’ song.
— F. M. Lehman
